Focal Length:75mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

It took me a long time to identify this bird and finally I had to get help. Who would have thought that a red-winged black bird would be brown with no sign of red at all. This was taken in August a few years ago on our front lawn. As I understand it after being courted quite glamourously the female then does all the nesting work and is content in her camouflage. I still have trouble believing the female and male red-winged black bird could be so different!

The real worker in the family
